Thomas Clarkson Community College’s top performing arts students put on a show for 160 primary school kids as part of the school’s dance festival.

Their dazzling displays included country and molly dancing, the hakka, wake and shake and street dancing.

And when that was done they got the whole of the audience on their feet to teach them a dance routine to the music of pop superstar Lady GaGa.

A spokesman for the school said: “The students performed a dance that they had created themselves and which left the primary children open-mouthed with admiration.”

However the Thomas Clarkson students will have to look over their shoulders for six-year-old Poppy Gill.

The Nene Infants’ School pupil performed a magnificent solo street dance at the event and has already been snapped up by a club to take part in the World Street Dance Championships in Blackpool later this year.
